Meet the Wood Frog (Lithobates sylvaticus)

During winter in Alaska, the Wood Frog freezes 60% of its body so that it looks like a frog-shaped piece of ice. While frozen, the frog stops breathing, its heart stops beating, its blood stops flowing, and it cannot move.
However, when spring arrives, the frog’s body thaws and the frog returns to normal life.

Remember that Froggy painting I did? Well I gave it to Chris and this is the video my friend shot for me while I was standing there, awestruck.

It meant so much coming from someone who is very self-conscious and not confident in their art to hear his personal hero say all these thing and truly like it. Even Alla took pictures and I just, wow, I’m crying. I was so dumb I stood there like a five year old just saying ‘thank you’ over and over and my voice was so high cause I was so nervous. Today was just amazing.

Omigosh I think she’s done, a little Mango :D Cameras are overall awful at picking up the light-brown-with-sparkles that are her eyes, but that’s alright. This is exciting though, my first full faceup :D I expect it’ll stick around for a while, though it’s definitely got some messiness. All that might change is I might blush her legs and add spots to her body. Maybe.
